Linux Games: Chromium B.S.U.

Filed under

It’s been a long time since I offered up a nice Linux game for the Ghacks audience. So I thought, today I will introduce them to one of my favorite Linux time killers Chromium B.S.U. When I first discovered this game it’s original title was simply Chromium. Obviously this was a serious conflict of interest with Google. I have a feeling the name change (adding the B.S.U.) was due to release of the now-famous Google browser.

The game is a side-scrolling space-themed shooter that is very fast-paced and exciting. In fact, the creator of the game intended it to be very challenging and each game to only be about 15 or so minutes long. And that is exactly what it is. Chromium brings back memories of some of my favorite arcade games from the 80s like Galaga (although with far better graphics, sound, and action). So if you like such games, Chromium B.S.U. will be right up your alley.

Chromium is written in C and C++ and absolutely requires hardware acceleration.

Historians and detectives keep track of data with open source tool

Segrada is a piece of open source software that allows historians (and detectives) to keep track of their data. Unlike wikis or archival databases, its focus lies on information and interrelations within it. Pieces of information might represent persons, places, things, or concepts. These "nodes" can be bidirectionally connected with each other to semantically represent friendship, blood relation, whereabouts, authorship, and so on. Hence the term "semantic graph database," since information can be displayed as a graph of semantically connected nodes. Read more
